Lobos UPNFM Motagua betting odds

Motagua have taken just one point from their last three Honduras. Liga Nacional matches, following last weekend’s 3-1 defeat away to their opponent. Motagua are still seventh overall in the table, but the distance between them and the Continental qualification positions is slowly getting bigger. Saturday’s match at home to reigning champions Lobos UPNFM should prove no easy feat either – Motagua haven’t won against any Honduras. Liga Nacional leader since September 2008 and, notably, are without a win against any side currently within the top eight so far this season.

Lobos UPNFM have turned around their “unconvincing” run in style over the past 7 days. Lobos UPNFM dominated and humiliated their opponent with a 8-0 win at home last weekend, which also saw their striker net his first hat-trick of 2017, to become the Honduras. Liga Nacional’s joint top scorer (19 goals) in the process, before easing their way through to the semi-finals of the national cup at home to opponent during the week (3-0 win).

Lobos UPNFM are clear favourites here at 4/9 with bet365, but we feel that backing “both teams to score” at 21/20 has some decent potential for the following reasons:

Most people know about Lobos UPNFM and their striker, and for good reason too. He is a world class striker and currently in top form, with seven goals from his last four competitive outings. He’s also scored three goals in Lobos UPNFM’s last four on the road so you’d fancy him to continue this run as an anytime goalscorer at 4/7 with bet365. However, Motagua are not without a weapon of their own in French striker.Not to mention that he scored against the visitors earlier this season when Motagua took a point away from Lobos UPNFM (1-1 draw).

Notably, Lobos UPNFM’s recent domination has in fact come from matches at home. Lobos UPNFM have failed to keep a clean sheet in three of their last four Honduras. Liga Nacional away matches, including against some much weaker teams than Motagua, and the added strain following their mid-week national cup match, where the league leaders fielded a full strength squad, should add even more value to Motagua getting one against them.

Regarding a correct score bet, though Motagua are unbeaten at home this season (W5 D5), Lobos UPNFM hold the best away record in the Honduras. Liga Nacional (W8 D2 L1). Motagua’s poor track record against much stronger sides, combined with Lobos UPNFM’s return to goal-scoring form, means we feel the Lobos UPNFMns could sneak another win here. As such, we feel there’s decent value to be had backing a 2-1 Lobos UPNFM win at 15/2 with bet365.
